everybody! our first guest is a two-time academy award-winning acting legend. his new film "harry brown" opens in select theaters on friday. ladies and gentlemen, please welcome michael caine! ♪ [ cheers and applause ] >> my name is michael caine. >> jimmy: thank you so much for coming on the show. >> it's a pleasure. >> jimmy: we're honored to have you here. >> i'm a big fan of yours, anyway. >> jimmy: oh, thank you so much. >> yeah, from "saturday night live." i thought you were great. >> jimmy: wow! you're being real. thank you. [ laughter ] i'm really happy. thank you for saying that. >> i only lie if i'm paid. >> jimmy: genius. i was going to ask you, because, gosh, you've done 150 movies or something like that. >> yeah, i've done about 150 titles if you look on google or somewhere. but when i was a young actor, i was in second features, like
playing one-day bits. you know, i was the policeman who came in and arrested the guy, the villain at the end, or the butler that said, "dinner is served." so you get all these titles. [ laughter ] and i don't even know what the titles are. but there are about 80 movies in which i've starred, and so i do know what they are. >> jimmy: oh, my gosh. but that's -- probably, i'd say, most kids around today know you as alfred from "batman." >> yeah, i have a whole new group of fans now. i was in london. i was walking along piccadilly, and there was a dozen japanese girls coming along. and all small, about 14 or 15 or 16, and they're all going, "alfred." i said, "yeah." and they didn't speak -- [ laughter ] and they gave me a pen, and i'm signing their hands and arms, and people were looking at this sort of funny old englishman in the middle of all these little girls, chatting away. and nobody knew what was going on. [ laughter ] including none of us, because they didn't speak english, and i just -- "alfred!"
[ laughter ] >> jimmy: yeah, absolutely. >> but i knew who alfred was. >> jimmy: you were good like that. >> yeah, yeah. >> jimmy: you're very quick. >> well, i'm good on the uptake. yeah. >> jimmy: it's such an amazing career, such an amazing lifto come from a poor kid to end up being in all these movies, and then getting honored by the queen. and getting knighted. >> yeah, i the got knighted. that's an extraordinary experience. and it's kind of -- they're very efficient in everything, because the moment you get out of the car, you're digitally photographed, the entire ceremony, which takes about two hours. and back to the car, and you can buy a frame of anywhere along that thing. but what happens is, a lot of the people who are knighted are sort of elderly, you know? [ laughter ] and you -- it's true. you have to wait -- i wasn't elderly, but i was quite old, anyway. i personally thought it was a bit late, actually. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: as do we. >> as you do.
so but what happens is, they're quite elderly, so the person you see when you go inside is a replica of where you're going to kneel down. and it's a cushion on a wooden stand. and it's got a handle on the side so you can push yourself up. and so what you do is, you have a little practice so that you push yourself up once she's knighted you, because you don't want queen having to come forward and help you up off the floor. [ laughter ] and that's true. they do that. they do that. >> jimmy: so you have to practice getting down and standing up. >> i mean, i didn't even bother, because i knew i could do it. and also, when you're walking along the corridor -- there's a big, long corridor in buckingham palace. and if you're a movie star or something or someone famous like me, you get all of the staff looking out at you and giggling and pointing all the way along. and you're with a big soldier with a hat like this, a guardsman, and he's going "get in, get in." and they're all rushing in. and then you get there, and you know, you're quite taken aback
by how informal the whole thing is. it's quite funny. >> jimmy: does the queen talk to you? >> the queen says -- the highest award on my day -- i noticed this about the queen. the highest award was the knighthood. and to the five of us who were knighted, she said the least. but as she got right down to o.b.e. for the lady who cleaned hospitals for 40 years, she's talked to them more and more and more. the sort a lowlier ones. but what she said to me was, when she knighted me, she said, "i have a feeling you've been doing what you do for a very long time." [ laughter ] and i felt like saying, "and so have you." [ laughter ] [ applause ] i've got a very big mouth. but i'm also quite smart. i said, "michael, shut your mouth. otherwise, you'll wind up with no knighthood before you've even got it, or you'll be in the tower." so i never said another word.
>> jimmy: that's very good. more with michael caine when we get back, everybody. come on back! [ cheers and applause ] ♪ depression is a serious medical condition it can take so much out of you. i feel like i have to wind myself up just to get out of bed. then... well... i have to keep winding myself up to deal with the sadness, the loss of interest, the trouble concentrating, the lack of energy. if depression is taking so much out of you, ask your doctor about pristiq.

[ laughter ] but in the movie, i'm not. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: absolutely, no, no, no. what was it -- your wife -- >> no, in the movie, i'm a very old man living in what you call the projects here, and there's gangs all around. they kill my best friend, and i decide to go out and kill them. and it's a sort of revenge movie. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: sort of, yeah. >> no, but also i'm dying of emphysema. my wife has just died. so i'm kind of lonely, so it's really sort of -- justified suicide, you know. >> jimmy: stack 'em up. >> i'm not -- i was going to take some guys with me. >> jimmy: it is -- it is exactly
like that. you've got to love you in this movie. because i -- who directed this again? >> daniel barber, a young guy. it's his first movie, actually. he was great, yeah. >> jimmy: the first 30 seconds of this movie is like -- scares you. >> scares the daylights out of you. yeah. scared me, because i didn't see him shoot me. [ laughter ] no, but it's very funny. we used real guys from the gangs, and i never knew whether i was talking to an actor or, you know. and daniel would sort of placate my fears. he'd say, "they're real guys, but only one of them is on probation." [ laughter ] "oh, thanks." >> jimmy: you grew up in that type of area, right? >> for me, the point about it is, it's a movie about these gangs and everything, but it's exactly where i come from. and, of course, i was in a gang then when i was young. but i mean, half of these gangs -- people are not in gangs to attack people. i know, because i -- i was in a gang in order not to be attacked by anybody. and it's sort of self-defense.
but when i went back there to shoot the movie, exactly 500 yards from my old -- where i lived, i realized that my gangs were kind of like mary poppins compared to these. [ laughter ] [ bleep ]. i mean, because we had alcohol and fist fights, you know. the worst you could get is a broken nose or a couple of teeth knocked out. but here they've got drugs, guns, knifes. and there's people dying all over the place. >> jimmy: yeah, frightening. >> scary, yeah. >> jimmy: yeah. but we should get back to talking about "harry brown." you do seek revenge and start just going off on people, and you go into -- some sick areas, and you get some guns, and then start -- >> yeah, yeah. >> jimmy: we have a clip of that. so we should take a look at a clip of "harry brown." here's michael caine. >> what's your name, son? tell me your name.
>> marky. >> tell me what happened in the subway with leonard, marky. >> who's leonard? >> he's the man you and your mates murdered. so what happened, son? >> i don't know what you're talking about. [ sobbing ] >> tell me what happened to leonard. >> -- off. ahh! >> jimmy: there you go. [ cheers and applause ] that's the way you do it. that's fantastic. i can just watch you act -- >> he told me -- >> jimmy: yeah. he ends up telling you. yes, he did. we were talking earlier about comedians, quickly, because i
was talking about dudley moore and peter cook. >> oh, yeah. >> jimmy: i love those guys. >> yeah. i love those two. i remember, they did a wonderful sketch where dudley came in, and he was a man with one leg. and the agent was peter cook, and dudley with one leg, and he was auditioning for tarzan. >> jimmy: for the role of tarzan. yeah. >> yeah, and i remember peter cook as the agent says, "i noticed that you are one leg deficient." he said, "mind you," he said, "your right leg, i like." [ laughter ] "but i don't think you're ever going to make tarzan." >> jimmy: yeah, "your right leg, i like. i have nothing against your right leg." the problem is -- >> neither do you. [ laughter ] i'm trying to remember that punch line. >> jimmy: so good. yeah, i love that show. >> i get halfway through the gag, and i thought, "what's the punch line?" [ laughter ] >> jimmy: yeah. i love your accent. i could hear you talk forever. is it a cockney accent? >> it's -- yeah. it's a sort of slightly slower
cockney for the american market. you know, you speak -- cockneys speak too fast for you to understand. >> jimmy: so right now you're being slow? >> yeah, i'm talking nice and slowly for you. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: thank you so much. >> i want you to understand everything i say. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: but what is cockney rhyming slang? >> cockney rhyming slang, it was invented for prison so that you could talk to each other and the warders wouldn't know. and also, cockneys are gentlemen, and it's sort of for you to say sort of disgusting things in front of ladies. because they would never want to offend a lady, if you see what i mean. and so that's why there's rhyming slang. >> jimmy: can you give us an example of what that would be? >> i would say to my wife -- in a context -- in a social context, i would say "elbow the ice cream." and she would know what to do. and my wife is from cashmere, and she speaks it.
"elbow the ice cream" mean get rid of, "elbow." and "ice cream" is rhyming slang. it's "ice cream freezer," which is rhyming slang for "geezer," which is a man. so "elbow the ice cream" means "get rid of that man." >> jimmy: is that right? >> yes. and there's -- there's thousands of them. there's apples and pears for stairs. but you get weird ones. like let's say -- uh -- i suddenly realized i couldn't say it, because -- [ laughter ] i was about to say -- yeah. >> jimmy: it's that dirty. but you're a gentleman. and i appreciate you not doing that. >> i didn't want to get you slung off the air. >> jimmy: i appreciate that. well, please come back whenever you're around or in town or anything or skype in or whatever you want to do. >> it's been a pleasure, jimmy. thank you. >> jimmy: michael caine, everybody.

and then you're, like, always in the room going, "well, i'll take care of it, jack." >> yeah, it is. people associate us with, like, we're, you know, so close. but when you watch the show, yeah, i'm barely in the same room with them. it's kind of cool. >> jimmy: yeah, but now you're actually -- you're in a lot of scenes with him. >> yeah, i can't even -- there's some major stuff gonna happen between him and i. >> jimmy: you can't even talk about it? wait, what? >> yeah. >> jimmy: what is going on? [ audience ohs ] what? >> we get married before the day is over. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: you're lying to me. oh, my god, you got me so good. >> but i'm serious, there is crazy stuff. that is true. i'm afraid to even finish the sentence because i will blow it. >> jimmy: you'll get sued? >> or get sued. >> jimmy: or get sued, yeah, so you can't tell us. >> it's very intense. >> jimmy: it's ending, this is the final season. >> yeah, the whole week was very emotional because of stuff that i had to do as an actor, stuff that i did with kiefer, jack in the scene, and also just because it was emotional because it was the last week. big stuff. >> jimmy: yeah, i read some twitter thing.
i saw you on twitter and you said that you had to take down your bon jovi posters from your trailer. >> yeah. >> jimmy: sad. >> um, i was lying about that. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: story? >> i just have to come clean, and i'm nervous, because i lie a lot on twitter so that i seem cooler. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: wait. wait a second. [ cheers and applause ] you lied? >> it's a pressure to be funny or cute. and sometimes the impulse -- and you write something really boring, you know, like, i'll be like, "i'm at the dog park." and i'm like, "ugh, it's so boring!" so i just write, "with rachel mcadams." [ laughter ] "she's here with me." >> jimmy: and then it seems like a really cool thing. >> "and justin bieber." [ laughter ] >> jimmy: that's a good one, yeah. >> just throw him in there. >> jimmy: well, thanks so much for coming on our show. i appreciate it.
